Megger adds test lead reels to ground tester
Optional test lead reels have been added to the DET2/3 earth/ground resistance tester by Megger.
According to the company, the test lead reels dramatically reduce time and frustration for the operator. This high-performance ground tester replaces Megger’s DET2/2 that was an industry standard for 25 years.
Designed to test communications and ground systems, the DET2/3 tester features a graphic display for better data analysis, excellent error detection capabilities, as well as the widest range of test frequencies to ensure noise protection.
The DET2/3 has a test frequency range from 10 to 200Hz in steps of 0.5Hz. An automatic frequency selection feature allows users to ensure tests are carried out at the frequency with the lowest noise level.
A large internal memory allows immediate calculation of resistivity and can store more than a day’s worth of test results. These results can be downloaded to a USB flash drive or directly to a PC running PowerDB software.
Megger’s robust DET2/3 meets IEEE Standard 81 and is suited to testing grounding and lightning protection. It has an IP54 rating during use for real-world conditions as well as IP65 protection (with the lid closed). This tester can be a diagnostic tool for anyone performing ground testing. The DET2/3 supports two-, three- and four-pole ground resistance measurements.
Megger manufactures and supplies test and measurement equipment used within the telecomms, electric power and building wiring industries. It has research, engineering and manufacturing facilities in the USA, UK, Sweden and Germany, and sales and technical support in most countries.
